of concrete doing anything. >> so at this stage people are watching and hoping. >> ukraine, the united states or the eu? >> i think both equally. i think ukraine has great respect for the u.s. and that's a post soviet thing looking at a capitalistic system and seeing the way they could have learned. great respect for the u.s. and looking for the neighbors in the eu for some kind of backup. and what does people expect is going to happen? is there any sort of prediction? >> i think the ukrainian as a people and especially when it comes to government military are being very cautious they know that restraint is in order because as soon as anything happens, then putin may use that as an excuse to escalate the situation it is a game of being very patient. >> another big development today. intracon missile john negroponte director of national intelligence and former u.n. ambassador. he joins us. good evening, ambassador. >> good evening. >> i don't think what the russians did is surprising but on the other hand identifying the circumstances and the facts leading up to a situation like this is very v
.s. wants ukraine to remain a unified autonomous state. >> i think the u.s. is trying to demonstrate support for the integrity and the sovereignty of ukraine, trying to do everything possible to not only avoid a russian invasion but the split-up of ukraine. i think that's the last thing the u.s. wants to see. try to do that not just through its own words and diplomats but also through the european union, meetings and words coming out of nato as well. >> now, secretary kerry said that everyone involved in ukrainian crisis needs to avoid provocations. anne-marie? >> susan mcginnis in washington. thank you, susan. >>> a critical underground nuclear waste dump is closed this morning. investigators are trying to find the source of a radiation leak at the site near carlsbad, new mexico. 13 workers above ground were exposed earlier this month. they inhaled radioactive particles. air monitors a half mile away detected elevated levels. officials say it's too soon to determine the health effects. >>> well, coming up on the "morning news," the hunt for hackers. we'll take you inside a secret service op

those commitment, and i think it's time for united states and britain to act to show support for ukraine. >> how so? where is the leverage? is there any leverage for the u.s. to use here? what kind of tools do we have? >> this is one of thele cha le a challenges. my guess is there's not serious interest in the west and military action going to the world in crimea. there do seem to be a number of political groups the west could take that would be designed to publish and isolate politically the russians. for example it would make stones go to the u.n. security council and put forward a resolution condemning russia and calling for russia to stop. russia would violate that and be isolated to veto to block that. i think we got to go beyond the notion of telling the russians if they don't stop, there would be no g-8 summit in sochi. if you don't stop, we'll go back to the g-7. this is a group of industrialized democracies. russia has long not been a democracy. it's time for the other seven to stop giving russia a pass on that. and they make it as a pent for this action. >> so big picture here,
the united states do? >> not a lot they can do. if the ukraine goes back and tries to go back and request help from nato to help russia answer for what they're doing, again there's too much military force on the ground right now that's already been expended for him to back off. >> what does the ukrainian government do and what does kiev do? >> again if they decide to launch and meet this potential military force you could have a very bloody battle that takes mace in the southern part of the ukraine and again with 150,000 troops on that border very quickly deployed, while ukraine's military is very sharp very highly trained, it would be a very interesting battle so to speak. there's not enough numbers to match the russian forces. >> they are outmatched? >> they are outmatched, outnumbered outsupplied. better naval fleet that exists in the black sea easily reinforced. >> do you think this will happen quickly? >> if it does, it will happen quickly. will he back off in the next 48 hours? if he moves more troops in all we have to think is that he wants to keep that region. >> mike lyons thank

package for ukraine's economy, as secretary of state john kerry met with government officials in kiev. mr kerry then met with russia's foreign minister in the first meeting since the crisis began. tensions have been on the rise since russian troops invaded crimea, a region populated by both ukrainian and russian citizens. the white house is preparing economic sanctions if russia does not comply with the request to remove troops from crimea, within days. russian president vladmir putin contends russia reserves the right to protect its people. as tensions simmer down for now-- russia is stepping up its natural gas game. russia is the second largest producer of the energy...and much of its oil flows through ukrainian pipelines to the rest of europe. russian natural gas monopoly gazprom plans to discontinue discounts on the nat gas it delivers to ukraine starting early next month. gazprom claims the ukraine is not fulfilling contractual obligations. fox business news analyst and oil trader phil flynn has this take.. " when we look at ukraine it's kind of the tale of two markets: you've got
monitors coming from the osce into ukraine, and we heard that they were turned around. still state department still trying to figure out who turned them around. but remember, russia is asking for monitors on the ground. they want to have some, you know -- they want to basically corroborate their charge that ethnic russians are under threat. so you need the diplomacy, you need the talking to happen now. and you needy escalation quickly. >> and the world will be anxious to hear what kerry says. once he does go before the microphones over there ask starts speaking, whether it's going to be positive or negative, so much will depend on what's happening in this critical meeting right now. >> no question. and at the same time, you have this good cop/bad cop going on. because you have the diplomatic efforts, kerry in paris, but you also have military moves now by the u.s., putting more planes in the baltic region up there, nato allies extending an air mission in poland, another nato ally. that's the pressure. and financial pressure, as well. a vote tomorrow on the senate foreign relations
are talking about. the united states, european union, the ukraine and russia. the implication for each one of those markets are very different. for the united states, because of our geographic, distance, from the ukraine, we also do not because we don't have the same financial relationship. the mistakes -- the stakes are quite a bit higher and so are the risks. we can expect to see volatility. that said, within the volatility and dislocation, it is actually an opportunity for investors to reposition if they believe, as i do, the recovery in europe will take hold. class we will continue to watch it all and keep everyone updated. we appreciate you being here today. ryan and hannah. all right. of vladimirnk putin, the word peace does not come to mind. check it out. [indiscernible] peace prize. >> are we sure it is not a hoax? >> it is not. .rovided a way out whether hes, deserves a nobel peace prize for that is a big question. >> i do not think john mccain would like as much. >> he believes the cold war is still on. crimea are at least keys to maintaining the empire. ♪ >> you can see the ro

and borders of ukraine and of international laws and indeed the united states will sand with the intrucial community in frirming -- international in affirming that there will be consequences in ukraine. >> nick schifrin, good to have you on the show. says russia is trying to convene a military conflict. he queend a meeting o -- he convened a meeting on friday night. what's the latest? >> they're still deciding what to do. the recent operation or the recent traition mission as putin -- training mission as putin put it that the russians are doing on the ukrainian border, 150,000, that's a training mission? the whole ukrainian army is 150,000. the new government is 28, 29 hours old and the political challenges, economic challenges that ukraine has they are absolutely focused on the south on crimea and they are trying to figure out what to do. the rhetoric has been very aggressive. what they have been saying is the military can go into the armed buildings or to the parliament buildings where the armed men stormed yesterday and people here are warning that the ukrainian military could go in and
ukraine and georgia on a clear path to nato membership, the united states has essentially ignored what has happened in ukraine and now we're paying the price because our options are very limited. >> two things, i want you to tell me what has happened in the ukraine and maybe this is too simplistic but why not have ukraine split in two? >> i think there's a strategic interest for the united states but ask yourself this question, when was the last time the president either addressed publicly or considered privately what those interests are. >> the phone call that president obama had vladimir putin today. the g-8 and of course we know putin likes to put on a show. he had a show during the olympics and there in sochi and he loves to grandstand and he does care about how shis countr and power is seen. conversely, he has respect for power. so what is our play? >> we don't have a plan. you know, i personally never would have brought russia into the g-8. now all you have to do is get the europeans to agree to that. if you think they are exercised now, wait until the g-8 meeting in june and see how
into ukraine. he said in a statement, quote, every moment that the united states and our allies fail to respond sends the signal to president putin that he can be even more ambitious and aggressive in his military intervention in ukraine. i call on president obama to rally our european and nato allies to make clear what costs russia will face for its aggression and to impose those consequences without further delay. on the democratic side, the ranking member on the house foreign affairs committee eliot engel said the international community should help ukraine return to political and economic health. he said, quote, the united states and our allies must be ready to help which is why i support a robust international economic assistance package, and the administration's proposal to provide u.s. loan guarantees and other assistance to ukraine. house republican speaker john boehner says the obama administration's, quote, acquiescence and in some cases silence in dealing with putin in the past several years has imboldened russia to take more aggressive action, greg? >> molly, thanks very much.>>> no
to the border with ukraine between poland and ukraine, but it's quite clear that europe and the united states no matter how much you know, kerry mentioned that they are so united, there is really nothing more than economic pressure. now, that could actually -- >> you think the military is pleatly off thcompletely off th? >> actual movement of nato troops, i don't think this situation warrants that. but they are talking about economic sanctions and that actually could, in the longer term, prove pretty harmful to mr. putin, because after all, he is supported by an elite of russians who are very interested in close ties with the west. they don't want to get on black lists and not be able to have exchange. they want western investments. so, yeah, i think the economic lever is something that can be used. >> but it's interesting that you both think that the economic 11 and diplomacy respectively are such powerful tools here. earlier andrÉ you said that your colleagues in washington said this issue was as big as iraq. so why should it then warrant a different response? >> we saw what happened there
community on edge since president putin got parliament's okay to send troops into ukraine. right now nato ambassadors are meeting on the crisis here in the u.s. secretary of state john kerry has strong words. >> it's an incredible act of aggression. it is really a stunning, willful choice by president putin to invade another country. >> he called it an invasion. now, the talks shift to how to calm everything down before it escalates even more. we have live coverage around the world. michelle kosinski is live at the white house. mcclove lynn and ian lee live in ukraine's capital city, kiev. this hour the white house trying to add to pressure on russia. president obama reaching out to allies by phone one day after he spent 90 minutes on the phone with the russian president vladimir putin. u.s. correspondent michelle kosinski joins us now. michigan, the white house, what is the mood? what are they saying? >> it has been a busy weekend. president obama has been actively working on this today. he's been briefed by his security team. as you mentioned, later on he'll take calls with allies. the

a grand old time violating international law and watching the western powers kneel. today in ukraine secretary of state kerry put forth more rhetoric. >> the russian government, out of excuses, hiding its hand behind falsehoods, intimidation, provocations. hearts of ukrainians and the eyes of the world. there is nothing strong about what russia is doing. >> he has to read that kerry has to read that off the paper. talk from the heart mr. secretary. in way you have got to hand it to putin. he knows themep west is weak. he knows president obama will most likely not be able to rally the european nations against him. in short putin knows he can pretty much know what he wants to do and he is enjoying the speck cackle. a lot of attention on that narcissist. the north atlantic treaty organization nato is supposed to be the bull work against oppression. funds 22% of nato's military budget far more than any other nation. afghanistan supplying 68% of nato troops. without us nato does not exist. with us nato pretty much does not exist. because it's powerless. as european governments time after
objective. and ukraine is the most important of those states from his standpoint, and i think it's a very high priority for him to pull ukraine back into russia's orbit. that's what he's going to try and do and, frankly, i don't think he's going to make any significant concessions. we'll see tactical moves back and forth in the next days and weeks, but i think that you will not see him back away from that fundamental objective which he has been pursuing for some time. our objective is for ukraine to have independence, for it to be a democratic state, to be able to choose its own leaders and, if it chooses to closely align with the west and the e.u., to be able to do that. those are the objectives that the west has in this. so these are clearly contrary, and those who say putin has, you know, violated international law and that he's playing the old great power game, i think the answer to that is, yes, he is, but that's the way he plays the game and it's the way he's been playing the game for the last several years. >> charlie: you have said that president obama should be "looking two or th
priority among russia, the united states and the eu is economic stability within the ukraine. the u.s. said they would look to the imf to take the lead, but that has not been decided, that's being worked out as well, tony. >> white house correspondent mike viqueria, thank you. >>> a day of action is underway around the world to draw attention to the plight of our al jazeera colleagues in egypt. three al jazeera english correspondents. mohamed fahmy, peter greste and baher mohamed. al jazeera rejects the charges against them. putting down their cameras in solidarity with our staff. our colleagues in berlin came out to demand the charges against our colleagues be dropped. abdalla al shami has been on a hunger strike for more than a month. journalists from around the world are asking the egyptian government to release all our staff. maria innes ferre is here. , maria, hello. >> this is a map of a hashtag that's been trending all over the world from asia, north america, south america, europe, and these are the images of hundreds and hundreds of journalists, activists, organizations, that have b
showdown between ukraine and russia. late today, president obama had strong words about what's at stake. >> any violation of ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity would be deeply destabilizing. the united states will stand with the international community in affirming that there will be costs for any military intervention in ukraine. >> earlier today on wall street, investors and traders were spooked on unsettling reports that russia's foreign minister confirmed that thousands of heavily armed russian troops moved into ukraine's crimea region, ramping up tensions between moscow and the interim government in kiev. within minutes, a 126-point gain in the dow vanished. but nearly as quickly as those headlines spark add final hour selloff in the markets, stocks battled back surging higher until the closing bell, enough to see the s&p 500 and the russell 2000 close at fresh all-time highs. on this last trading day of february, the dow rose 9 points, s & p at 10. >>> susie, today's volatility notwithstanding, the just completed month of february was a doggone good one for wall stree
't let the ukraine get the eu and the united states into a civil war in the ukraine. but there are lots of really good options leading up to. that i would just cancel in sochi. i wouldn't talk about the planning session. i would cancel it and go into a very aggressive posture on how we help the ukraine financially. if they can get through the financial troubles, they could survive. >> lets's talk big picture. how do you think president obama has been handling relations with russia versus how putin handling relations with the united states? >> well, i think putin is playing chess and i think we're playing marbles. i don't think it's even close. if you look at the nuclear negotiations, we got our fanny handed to us. they took tactical nukes out of the ee kragquation. when you move down the list in syria, the russians got everything that they needed. they believe they needed in syria. and so they've been running circles around us. i think it's the naive position on a national security council and the president's advisors that if we just keep giving things to russia, they'll finally wake up
document 1994, heads of state summit, president clinton was there. ukraine is a partner as is russia. in that document it says that that nation, ukraine, can come to the north atlantic council of nato if their territory integrity is threatened, their security is threatened, it can come and say, we would like to bring our attention. >> would nato come to the defense of ukraine? >> i think if the u.s. would invoke that to the north atlantic council because that is part of the agreement, i think that the united actions by nato could have an effect to deter what russia may or may not do with troops. >> but they have to agree. you've got to get germany, you've got to get all of the nato allies on board. they have been hesitant to act. >> many of them are very concerned that this is a portend of the future. look, there are ethnic russians in estonia and a western outpost in europe. this can have an effect, i think, if action isn't taken not just military, political, diplomatic, economic. >> i'm going to show our viewers new video just coming in. these are russian troops. they are fully ope
with the prime minister of ukraine to assure him that in this difficult moment the united states supports his government's efforts and stands for the sovereignty, territorial integrity and democratic future of ukraine. i also commend the ukrainian government's restraint and its commitment to uphold its international obligations. we will continue to coordinate closely with our european allies. we will continue to communicate directly with the russian government and we will continue to keep all of you in the press corps and the american people informed as events develop. thanks very much. >> and you've been listening to the president address the crisis in the ukraine saying he is deeply concerned by the reports that there have been russian military movements in the ukraine and that, of course, the u.s. stands with the ukrainian people. >> and the international community according to the president. at this point what we know right now that is according to sources inside ukraine, russian military helicopters and transport planes have entered that country. currently two of their main airports in c
the main airport. ukraine's acting president urging president putin to stop provocations. and pull back military sources. we have a live report from the region in a few minutes. here in the united states, president obama warning russia there will be costs for military intervention in ukraine. from the latest correspondent jennifer griffin is live at the pentagon. jennifer? >> greta, officials tell us they are seeing military movement by russian forces into and out of the area. they are moving by land and by sea. this video apparently shows some of the dozen or so russian combat helicopters crossing the border into the ukraine today. sources tell us approximately 2,000 russian troops may have landed at a military base near the city. ukraine special representative described it as an armed invasion, an occupation. president obama issued this warning from the white house. >> just days after the world came to russia for the olympic games and would invite the condemnation of nations around the world. and indeed the united states will stand with the international community in affirming that th
threat, secretary of state john kerry warned russia any military in ukraine would be a quote, grave mistake. >> russia needs to be very careful in the judgments that it makes going forward here. we are not looking for confrontation. but we are making it clear that every country should respect the territorial integrity here. the sovereignty of ukraine. russia said that it would do that and we think it's important that russia keeps its word. >> kerry's counterpart in russia fired right back. he warned the west against forcing any decisions upon the interim ukrainian government. >> translator: it's dangerous and counterproductive to force upon ukraine a choice based on the principal you're either with us or against us. ukraine has to be a part of a global european family in the full meaning of the term. >> the crimea, the scene of fierce clashes today between pro and anti-russia protesters. the opposing groups were carrying russian and ukrainian flags. two people were killed in those demonstrations. and riots. more than 30 hospitalized. our first guest tonight says vladimir putin is cl

of which the united states is the biggest shareholder. just this morning ukraine's economic minister said they need 15 billion, they need 15 billion over the next two years from the imf. we could be on the hook for some of that as well. charles: thank you very much. i want to get back to katy mcfarland. you have an opinion piece on let's go through them one by one. >> okay. immediately we will rethink the missile shield that president obama cancelled in poland, the czech republic. that gets the russians very nervous. and then we do the economic stuff, we say the defense budget. the same day the russians were saying when negotiating with new bases around the world and we will restore and revitalize the military base in the former soviet union. and then the third thing is start hitting them economically. putin has played a long game here. he wrote his graduate dissertation on how russia was going to be great again. it was going to use the economic weapon, build pipelines to europe and sell europe natural gas and therefore have clinical control. big oil revenues and windfall to
and secretary of state john kerry. speaking with someone in the ukraine with more on the fragile situation. have two sides saying they do not want this to escalate. both prepared to take further action. john kerry delivering that message. want todent obama and i make it clear to russia and everybody in the world that we are not seeking confrontation. there is a better way for russia to pursue its legitimate interests in the ukraine. >> with russian warships on the coast, and troops around military bases, this part of the ukraine is under the world microscope tonight. >> >> i know president who in has a different set of lawyers making a different set of interpretations. i do not think that is fooling anybody. >> the threat is there. you have -- with a person taking part in the protests. threats of economic sanctions against russia may be their biggest help. today, it is the ukraine. tomorrow, russia will occupy lot via. -- latvia. it is a threat to the world. >> the russians caused alarm, flawed -- firing a ballistic missile in. that was preplanned before the invasion. not to be shown as a sign o
global powers are in paris to talk about ukraine. we're waiting on remarks from secretary of state john kerry and potential sergey lavrov. we'll keep you updated. they're trying to find an exit to this crisis. we have heard from secretary kerry once. here he was earlier laying the foundation before the talks began. >> the united states of america, the russian federation, and the united kingdom of great britain and north ireland reaffirm their obligation to refrain from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of ukraine. weapons will not be used against ukraine. >> congress is stepping in, and russian president vladimir putin, here was speaker boehner this morning on the subject. >> steps that have not been taken over the last three or four years frankly allowed putin to believe that he could do what he's doing without -- without any reaction from us. but given where we are, we're here in a bipartisan way trying to irk with with the president. >> john boehner urging more action and the u.s. is not alone in offering up assistance. the eu
to the ukrainian people that the united states stood with them in their desire to see a better future for ukraine aligned with europe and the west. this strong bipartisan approach here in america to the midon movement helped the people in the ukraine as they charted their path toward a new government. we didn't dictate. we supported the right of the people to determine it for themselves. but now despite the success of the midon, the crisis in the ukraine has changed its face. it hasn't dissipated. and today secretary kerry was greeted in kiev by ukrainians pleading for the continued support of the united states. and so having been so clear voiced in our support of the ukrainian people thus far since the tproe tests began last november, now is the moment when republicans and democrats should stand united in this congress so years from now when a group assembles in kiev marking the anniversary of this grave crisis they will celebrate ukraine's political sovereignty and economic rebirth with more chance of thanks to the united states. so, in what shape should this support come? first, we need to sta
that the folks gathered in the situation room at the white house and the state department want to do everything they can to slow the frame rate on this, to make sure that nothing brash is done. >> isn't worth noting that crimea is an autonomous region of ukraine? much the same way that chechnya is an autonomous region as previously granted by the russian government? is that accurate? >> there are a series of agreements that are governing the status of crimea with relation to df. -- kiev. these are by the grading government, and the russian government. they have publicly stated that they will abide by these agreements. they have a military presence there at the port -- >> their black seat fleet is based in crimea. >> exactly. it is reassuring to hear these official statements. they are committed to the territorial community -- injured three of the ukraine -- integrity of the ukraine. be no provocative acts, no military acts, and no certainly violent acts taken in crimea. reassurances about tiger tory -- territory integrity. little more forceful about how to df collates and see how people can pr
